knowing the mind of god

It is a common belief in many Christian circles to believe that it is next to impossible to know the mind of God. Except for special conditions, and a select few believers, the mind and ways of God are a mystery that most believe will remain unknown. Even though this is a widely accepted truth, it is a sadly mistaken acceptance. The reason that it is so sad is that it is just not true....read more

you were on his mind

There is an old Southern Gospel song that says, “When He was on the cross, You were on His mind.” You know, that is so true. Jesus died on the cross but it was not for His wrong, or His sin that He died. He said that no man took His life, but that He gave it up of His own free will and choosing. He could have walked right through them and left them...read more

a renewed mind

The human mind is a very powerful part of one’s makeup. It has been said that as the mind goes, so goes the person. If you can control a person’s mind, you can control the person. Well, that is just another way of saying what the Bible has already said. The Bible says it like this, “as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.”This is why Paul wrote to the church at Rome...read more

mind games

It has been said that whoever controls the mind, controls the body. That is a very true statement. If you can gain control of a person’s mind, you can literally control what that person does, how they will respond to certain stimuli. The mind is a very powerful force, exerting power that will win over ration and reason. You see, if a person thinks a certain way, they will respond in accordance to their thinking....read more

he's got you on his mind

Let me ask you a question. What do you need from God today? If you could ask God for anything at all and know that you would get it, what would you ask for? Think about yourself as you would want to be, healthy and whole in every area of your life. This is God's will for you. First Thessalonians 5:23 says, He desires you to be "preserved sound and complete [and found] blameless at...read more

understanding god’s thoughts

It is impossible to know the thoughts and ways of God, it says so right here in this verse. Not only here, but also in the New Testament it says that eye has not seen and ear has not heard, neither has it entered into the heart of man the things that God has prepared for them that love Him 1 Cor. 2:9. That is what a lot of people will tell you. I am...read more

thinking faith thoughts

The mind, will and emotions make up the soul of a person. The soul is the gate to the heart; knowledge in the soul comes before faith in the heart does. As a person fills his mind with the knowledge of God's Word, the Holy Spirit will write the Word upon the heart. When God's Word is engraved upon the heart, it creates faith in that Word. Your ability to have faith in God's Word...read more

open minded

Some people think that they have the Christian life all figured out. They have their doctrine all neatly organized and systematically categorized. Their eschatology (study of end time events) is so set in stone that God may have to check with them to see what He can do and when He can do it in these end times. You know the ones I am talking about, you have seen them and heard them too.Well, I’ve...read more

it’s all in your mind

We have been doing a lot of study lately on the emotional makeup of man. You know, man is a very complicated and interesting creature. I guess that is what David meant when he said that he was created very fearfully and wonderfully.We know that man is created in the image of God. The Godhead is triune in the fact that He is Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Man is also triune, or 3 part,...read more

what do you think?

There are some things that it doesn’t matter what we think about them. For example, I have heard people say that they don’t think that the miracles are still operating today. Some say that they don’t think that healing is available through the atonement. You know what I say to that? It doesn’t matter what you think it, God is not swayed by your thoughts on a subject. His Word and ways are not affected...read more
